Comedy is alive and well in the land of the Platypus. Melbourne hosted the 2011 Comedy Festival a few weeks back, and Twitter was abuzz with American comedians readying themselves for the long flight to the other part of the world. Marc Maron lamented how lonely it was without wifi for fourteen hours, while Paul F Tompkins boasted of heading toward a part of planet Earth where he would be living in the future.
As a Paul F. Tompkins fan, and frequent attendee of his amazing monthly show at Largo in Los Angeles, I must post the following video showing proof that PFT can be just as funny in the southern hemisphere as he is here. Please join Mr. Tompkins as he debates the topic of "The End of the World". I think we can all agree, we don't have to kill ourselves now.
